Several Bear cards for Father’s Day

Bear - Papa Bear

I have a girl at work that calls her dad Papa Bear and she has a standing order for Father’s Day and Birthdays. So when my friend who sales Close to my Heart had the new stamps on her blog I knew the girl at work would want this bear. So even though I don’t like stamping and coloring I bought it. Took me a WHOLE day and lots of different bears to get a few I liked. I ended up making several different cards with the bear so that was good….helped pay for it a little bit! I stamped this one with just black ink and then water colored him in with Tombow markers.

Bear - Adventures to start

You remember the baby card I made with an adventure theme. Well this is the dad’s Father’s Day card from the new born. I figured I would use the bear and go with the adventure theme again. I stamped this one with versa mark and heat embossed it before coloring it in with Tombo Markers. Did the arms different then the last bear and have a different saying.

Bear with Heart

Another lady liked the bear and wanted it holding a heart. The set comes with a stamp heart and die. I used just the die and cut it from the same blue paper to make the card. I also stamped the bear with Versa Mark and heat embossed it before coloring it in with Tombow markers.

Mothers Day Grizzell

One of the men I work with has 4 kids and he likes them to be represented on his Mother’s Day card to his wife. This year I went with butterflies. He has 2 girls and 2 boys and the girls are older…hopefully you can tell from the butterflies! I used Atlantic Heart Sketch #208 as my inspiration. The color combo I got from a color swatch at In Color Balance…I found a pin of it at https://www.pinterest.com/pin/309763280608472542/

Palm Tree Beach Birthday

So I made a card similar to this one last year (see below) …but forgot to post it! But a lady requested a palm tree/beach card for her nephew. This version is different because I used a new sun die I recently got (instead of part of a circle) and made the sand bigger on this one. I made the letters the same color as the sand in hopes it looks like it was drawn in the sand!

CHALLENGES:
1) April Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – theme – weather. Not sure if this is what Karen had in mind but it is SUNNY WEATHER on this card! (so wish I was there!)

SUPPLIES:
SVG file: Palm Tree @ Miss Kate Cuttables
Sun metal die: Stitched Sky Dies – Gina Marie Designs @ Scrapbook Outlet
Cardstock: Bazzill (kraft)
Accents/Tools: Cricut, Cuttin’ Up Cricut Cartridge, Xyron X

Happy Birthday Palm Tree Scene

Sympathy Bird

I needed a sympathy card for a lady at work. I just used some stickers from this package so I thought that the bird would make a good sympathy card. So I looked through my sketches and liked the sketch picked for the Feb Inspirational Card Challenge @ scrapbook.com. I went through all my scraps and just couldn’t find anything that worked so I would to my closet full of paper racks. I pulled out my brand new DCWV Violet Leaf paper pack and it had paper with gold foil on it!! It was perfect…thank you Flutterbye0419 for telling me I NEEDED this paper pack last month!! And this is what came together when I combined my supplies and sketch! I was pretty pleased with it…different then what I normally do but I like it!
